Ondo Decides 2020: Tinubu Absent As Akeredolu Holds Mega Ral

Former Lagos State Governor and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC),  Bola Tinubu, failed to show up at the mega rally of the party in Akure, the Ondo State capital, ahead of the governorship election in Ondo State.

The mega rally which took place on Wednesday and was aired on TVC had in attendance about 15  governors elected on the platform of the party.

The governors present at the Mega rally includes Yahaya Bello of Kogi State; Hope Uzodinma of Imo State; Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari; Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State; Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai; Kebbi State Governor, Atiku Bagudu; and Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola.

Others governors present were Governor Sani Bello of Niger State; Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum; Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni; Abdulrazaq Abdulrahman of Kwara State; Badaru Abubakar of Jigawa State; Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State; Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu; Gombe State Governor Muhammad Yahaya; and Simon Lalong of Plateau State.

Also present at the rally was Emmanuel Akabe, Nassarawa State Deputy Governor, and Ibikunle Amosun former Ogun State Governor as well as other prominent APC members, ministers, and senators.

Tinubu, a force to reckon with in the South West political terrain, is believed to have contributed to the victory of the party at the governorship election in Osun, Lagos, and Ekiti states.

However, Tinubu who was present at the launch of Akeredolu's re-election campaign in September failed to show up at the mega rally in Akure.

It will be recalled that the former governor was involved in the Edo governorship election which his party's candidate Osagie Ize-Iyamu lost to the incumbent Governor Godwin Obaseki.
